Glen Canyon National Recreation Area will participate in the annual Christmas Bird Count on Tuesday, January 4, 2011.

The Christmas Bird Count is an annual event that has been sponsored by the National Audubon Society for 111 years. Glen Canyon is one of over thirty locations in Arizona that participates in the annual bird count.

The public is invited to participate in Glen Canyon’s 13th annual bird count. You do not need to be an expert birder to participate. New birders will be paired with experienced individuals, making this a great way to start learning the birds of Glen Canyon.

Glen Canyon’s Christmas Bird Count will be held on Tuesday, January 4, 2011. Volunteers are asked to meet at 7:30 a.m. at park headquarters at the intersection of Scenic View Drive and Highway 89. Bird watchers will be in the field until 4:00 p.m., so dress warmly and pack a lunch and water. There is a $5 fee to participate in the bird count, which goes to the National Audubon Society to cover the costs of sponsoring the Christmas Bird Count and reporting the results.
